My hands are itching to type in this review, so I’m going to do it.
For me, Argo is the best movie of this decade. My first favorite is and always will be, The Shawshank Redemption (If you haven’t watched it, go do it now. Of course, not all will like it) but here is something to be fond of and cuddle with. So that makes me wonder whether I’m addicted to historical movies that have stories of hope and redemption, like the short stories I’ve written.
One word to describe it would be ‘brilliant’. Just brilliant. A movie that gets your heart racing faster and faster with every scene that goes by. By the end, you are on the edge of your seat. You want to know what’s going to happen.
Ben Affleck is a ‘brilliant’ director himself. Hell, I would give him all the best director awards myself, if I could. What’s surprising is he himself is the main hero of this movie. It amazes me, how he managed to pull it off. Acting and directing together, that’s some crazy stuff right there and yet he pulled it off and wonderfully.
The story of Argo is a story, you do not want to miss and it is a story that will not be forgotten. For your sake, go watch it, maybe you’ll love it, maybe you won’t.
But then remember, this is something that really happened, once upon a time in our history. And this movie itself will not be forgotten in our future.
